About me

I am at my best working with women and women's issues. I have an understanding of the pressures and influences on women today and the need to find somewhere safe to open up and talk through concerns

I focus on any problems you may be having in your relationships. We will explore any repeating patterns, misunderstandings or even emotional abuse that keep showing up for you.

I also work with women who are experiencing low mood, feelings of anxiety and depression, stress, feeling totally overwhelmed by life and have low self-esteem.

We will work together on achieving having a healthy sense of yourself, along with healthy relationships with others.  We will look at establishing manageable boundaries both in the workplace, at home and in your personal relationships.

I offer a quiet space to bring feelings around being overwhelmed by external pressures, along with the need to meet the expectations placed on you by others and any unrealistic expectations you may have for yourself

My aim is for you to feel heard and understood in a non-judgemental way.

I am a professionally trained BACP Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor.  I tailor my approach to suit the needs of each individual client, while we explore your personal history, your family history and any patterns which are no longer working for you.

I also work with grief and bereavement and have experience working in cancer care.

Working Together

A 50 Minute Session - I schedule an Hour for each client, as I find it helps to allow a few minutes either side to settle in and wrap-up sessions
